    Please do something about multiplayer!

    I'm new to racing games but am loving pcars. Only problem is that there is hardly any point playing online. First corner crash fest, then for the rest of the race whenever you overtake someone they purposefully ram you.

    There must be some way to allow online to have good, clean and fair races not spoilt by ramming idiots? I would almost go as far as a ghost mode, but this would lose some of the excitement.

    Perhaps the game could log the number of front end collisions you have and use this to match rammers with other players who frequently hit things with the front of their car?

    Anybody else got good ideas?

    Set your online lobby preference to Pro and look for races with full damage, real tyre, real fuel and the appropriate assists locked off. Look for races that have practise and qualifying periods, the crash and bash players cant be bothered to play for 25 minutes without racing so this helps out a bit.

    This is real logic however as I just posted a thread about the poor multiplayer search functionality it is annoying having to keep hopping in and out of sessions to find ones with those settings you mention. We should be able to search and say the following

    Qualifying = YES / NO
    Damage = YES / NO
    Tyre Wear = YES / NO
    Assists = YES / NO (Personally I'd like an option to search for all assists off so I'm racing like minded racers

    I'd also like to see it clearer what skill level are racers in my lobby, currently I think the skill level is utter useless as it doesn't display anywhere either as a level "Novice, Amateur, Pro" or as a number indicator like level 0 - 50. If I join a lobby and I could see what level people were I'd know if I wanted to stay but there are so many features missing which were promised, see my full list here

    Unfortunately I don't have any real life friends who have bought the game so that option of racing with just friends is out the window and I a have to race with unknown people with unknown skill.

    My first MP race was like that as well, sadly. As soon as I left the pits some person ram the back of my car and spun me out. Of course he didn't lose control and took off. I only gained 1 or 2 places that race because of them. It is annoying.

    I like to race clean only with the occasional bump, but not on purpose. If I do accidentally spin someone, I'll wait and let them get their place back, not just take off. So if you're looking to have a good race add me on PSN, SnakeEyesX80.

    You don't need real life friends who own the game. There are loads of threads here asking for clean racers, you just add them as friends in psn and set up games with them in private rooms.

    I'm having this trouble too. Even when I do a 25 minute qualifying, someone rammed me straight on the start. Then, as I made my way to the back of the pack, overtook 2nd to last, he deliberatly steered into me and took me off

    I noticed in the Driver Network area, it says 'penalties' under 'driver reputation'. Is this a redundant feature at the minute or do people need to search for lobbies that include penalties etc??
